Everything is newly created and freshly shot. A video installation composed of ‘real’ subjects without the use of CG. The videos produced for this exhibition, while fantastical in beauty, capture reality without the use of CG or similar technologies. They elevate the fleeting beauty found in everyday life to the status of an eternal presence.

A large-scale video experience that utilizes the entire surface of a dome-shaped ceiling with a maximum height of 15 meters. Concepts such as movement and stillness, life and death, tension and relaxation appear in quick succession, like a revolving lantern. The piece imagines the process of sinking into the unconscious, regaining consciousness, and awakening once again.

More Than Just an Exhibition

To commemorate the exhibition, a pop-up shop selling apparel in collaboration with designers and exclusive original merchandise available only at the venue will be present during the exhibition period. Additionally, there will be collaborative menus with restaurants in TOKYO NODE, and other events are also planned. While you’re there, don’t miss out on the exclusive merch at the pop-up shop.
